  • STEP 1

  • STEP 2
    In a bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until smooth.

  • STEP 4
    Add the flour into the mix bit by bit.
  • STEP 5
    Beat in the cocoa powder until it is as chocolaty as you want. Add the milk until smooth.
  • STEP 6
    Put into a tin and smooth out.
  • STEP 7
    Put into the oven for 15-20 mins or until cooked throughout.
  • STEP 8
    Leave to cool for 15-20 mins.
  • STEP 9
    While it is cooling, make the icing by mixing the icing sugar and water together and, like the cake, as much cocoa powder as you want.
  • STEP 10
    Once cooled, take the cake out of the tin and leave for a few mins before decorating.
